The act of saving a ship or goods from extraordinary danger, as from the sea, fire, an enemy, or the like: in commercial and maritime law, (a) an allowance or compensation to which those persons are entitled by whose voluntary exertions ships or goods have been saved from the dangers of the sea, fire, pirates, or enemies; the crew of a ship are not entitled to salvage for any extraordinary efforts they may have made in saving their own vessel; if the salvors and the parties from whom salvage is claimed cannot agree, a competent court has to fix the sum to be paid and adjust the proportions, which vary according to circumstances; (b) that portion of the property saved from danger or destruction by the extraordinary and voluntary exertions of the salvors.
